September 8, 2017 - Fall is right around the corner, or so it feels. The sun is beaming even though storms are raging and engulfing cities and places. And here I sit in a little, well-known coffee franchise with a sleeping babe in her car seat and the fragrance of coffee in the air.
My love for all of these runs high majority of the time. I love coffee shops dearly, would fight for Mercy any day, enjoy everything fall, and am thankful for sunny days that aren't so hot. And yet, the season I am in is quite dry. Wilderness does not give it justice.
Lonely is the heart of one who feels forgotten. But joyful is the one who reminds herself of blessing.
That sums up the place I find myself. Constantly reminding myself of the blessings set before me even without asking. And yet my heart is still sad. Saying yes to the Lord doesn't always look practical. It doesn't always feel great. But I will continue to press on for the glory of Christ. Thank you Lord.
So today I am thankful for quality time shared with best friends. For the coffee shop while Mercy snoozes. Thank You, Jesus.
